Who we are?
What personal data we collect and why we collect it?
This includes your email address, name, gender, birth-date, website, and address. Further data may be collected if you choose to share it, such as if you fill out fields on your profile. We collect this information in the following cases such as when you register as a member, fill out our contact form, and fill out fields on your profile page.
Like other websites, our server uses log files for varied purposes. These log files collected internet protocol (I.P) addresses, type of browsers, operating systems, screen dimensions, device framework, date and time, the internet service provider (I.S.P), demographical location, number of clicks, referring and exit pages, number of page views, and time of each session of the visitor’s device.
This information is used to analyze how much traffic our website receives, where does the traffic comes from, and how visitors interact in our pages. Through this data, we will learn the trends and interests of the visitors as a whole and help us to improve our services.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address, and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
What non-personal data we collect and why we collect it?
As leaving comments on the site, we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.
When you upload a photo as your profile picture and/or cover photo, it appears to the public in the context of your profile page. It also appears in the article you may publish or comments you may leave.
The uploaded photo associated with your published post(s) and comment(s) is being hosted to a secure external server or content delivery network in order to speed-up our websites’ performance.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
We use Google Analytics to monitor the amount of traffic, and behavior of our visitors. It collects your Internet Protocol (IP Address) and its location, Internet Service Provider, Traffic Sources, Landing and Exit Pages, pages that the user bounces in, and duration of sessions. If you don’t want to be tracked, you may disable cookies through individual browser options.
Google Adsense, as a third party advertisement vendor, may use double click dart cookies to deliver the most relevant advertisement to our visitor. To opt-out, you may disable cookies through individual browser options.
How long we retain your data?
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username).
What rights you have over your data?
If you have an account on this site or have left comments, you can request to remove any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
In the event that we remove content or delete an account due to a violation of our terms and condition, the user associated with it can no longer retain their data.
